on the hill this week. an aide to mccain tells cbs news that rice requested this meeting last week and it could be decisive. if she answers mccain's questions to his satisfaction, he says he would support her nomination. >> margaret, what do you think those questions will be from the senators that they want answered? >> reporter: charlie, there are a lot of them. specifically senator mccain has said he wants ambassador rice to explain why she did not mention that within 24 hours of the assault in benghazi that the intelligence community knew that there were links to al qaeda. as you remember, in five different television appearances, she said there was no evidence that the attack was preplanned. now senator mccain has said she misled the public. ambassador rice says she respect s mccain but that some of his criticisms are unfounded. as cbs news has reported her unclassified talking points were edited by the intelligence community, who removed references to al qaeda, not the white house or the state department, who did that specifically is under review by se

a story and cbs news, also. so other news networks and organizations are starting to dig in. so we might see a change on this, senator. >> i hope so. i menged, how can they explain that a counter-terrorism security group, especially designed to convene and coordinate actions of government, in cases of terrorist attack, they toll them to stand down. how do we know that? people who are part of that organization are mad as hell because they weren't convened. and they didn't act. while american lives were in danger. >> greta: well, if this story persist, it is because we are not getting answers and the administration hasn't. i would be glad to put this story to rest so we can all move o. but, senator, thank you, sir. dick morris has a prediction about the outcome of the election. what is it? good evening. erch says it's neck and neck, but your prediction is different? >> it is not neck and neck. it's a few laps, i think... romney is going to win by 5 to 10 points in the popular vote. i think he is going to win the electoral vote by something like 310-220. i think he will carry -- this is wan
all together. >> so you, lou dobbs, take the exact opposite stance that cbs news radio takes? exactly the opposite? >> imagine that. >> but look, come on now, cbs radio goes out to thousands of radio stations, people like me listen to it in their car or when you get up, this and that. you respect -- are a respected economic reporter. you say i don't think it's logical. >> you know they have to spin it the president's way. >> what it portrays a lack of understanding what is happening here and the numbers tell the story. this is a workforce in this country of over 135 million people. we see a net change within that of 171,000 people in one month. it takes about 150,000 of them to just keep up with population growth and suddenly there's economists on the air of cbs that say this is a broad-based change in direction. it is not. it's an improve men, a slight improvement if anything at all, and that's the fact of the matter. >> okay. so you say, and i'm sure with all due respect. >> surely. i like that respect word. >> that the economists, they chose, cbs chose, a guy named hoffman, that he
in its assessment of the news. but i knew when the economic data came out today cbs would report it this way. >> the labor department's october employment report, the last big reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a te higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad news is that unemployment among african americans jumped almost a full percentage point from 13.4% to 14.3%. that is a disaster. also, the rea
you. also in washington cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. >> hi, charlie. >> is the white house correct to read the election mandate that the country wants to see taxes raised on those who earn more than $250,000 a year? >> well that certainly is what the exit polls showed us. there was support for those polled for the president's position. the president has had lots of support for that position going back months and months. after the 2010 congressional elections when they won in that wave election that's still where the public was. having a public behind him has not helped the president in previous negotiations. of course, things have changed now. >> what do you think the mood is for compromise now? we've listened to speaker boehner. the president will make his case today. is there generally a mood that enough of this dysfunction, let's get things done and let's compromise, as long as we don't cross over our principles? >> yeah. i think there is a mood for compromise. the question is -- it will be interesting to watch the theater he
's a landslide. you talk about the gallup number, today the cbs/"new york times" numbers came out. three swing states, obama leads by one. in ohio, he leads by five. in virginia, he leads by two. this momentum by romney is all concocted and the press fell for it. dais i didn't call on you but you -- >> dana: i didn't call on you but you went anyway so i'll take the last word. one poll that came out yesterday that was interest, the national public radio teamed up resurgent republic to talk about the independent voters. if we go back eight months ago on the program to say what will matter in the election, independent voters. democrats vote for democrats. republicans vote for republicans. we have a group. gallop said 40% of the people identify independents now. there is an 8-point swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make prediction on the election turn-out. >> b
is that going to square with what the federal laws are which of course outlaw marijuana and you know, cbs news has obtained a key memo from federal prosecutors that suggest their position on this conundrum. >> federal law prohibits marijuana possession. the department of justice pointed to a memo from the deputy attorney general. persons who are in the business of cultivating selling or distributing marijuana are in violation of the controlled substances act regardless of state law. that left colorado's governor caught between federal law and his state. >> would you be advocating for this law with the federal government? >> i think as most people know, i didn't support the initiative. but you can't argue with the will of the voters. right. we are here in a democracy. and the sentiment was pretty clear. >> last week, jair et polis who is a democrat, a congressman from colorado, sent a letter to the department of justice saying leave us alone. essentially. the california voters have already spoken. today steve cohen, fr
. tonight we are getting closer to find out the answer to that now important question. according to cbs news it appears that the office of director of national intelligence headed by james clapper is preparing to take the fall to remove all references to al-qaeda and terrorism from that document. these were the talking points used by susan rice appearances which she blamed the incident on a youtube video. this revelation directly contradicts what clapper's and colleagues and intel community told congress last week. take a look at this. >> that the hearing we had on thursday and friday, we had every leader of the intelligence community there including folks from the state department, the f.b.i., everybody there was asked do you know who made these changes. nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed it was that was not there is the white house. >> so clapper was in the room and refused to take responsibility just last week. now, all of a sudden, that pressure is mounting on the white house and he steps forward to admit culpability. john mccain released a statement quote, this latest episode is
vry.edu/knowhow. >>> welcome back to "cbs this morning." brick township, new jersey, is one of the many places hard-hit by superstorm sandy. they have ordered new coastal evacuations starting tonight. >> the nor'easter in tomorrow's forecast is sure to make life harder for sandy's victims in new york and new jersey. seth doane is in staten island, new york. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie. that storm could complicate and slow relief efforts in hard-hit areas like this one, where problems from a lack of housing to a lack of electricity could only grow worse and worse as the storm comes. >> take the load off of this building right here. >> reporter: this houston utility crew traveled all the way to new jersey to help. thomas klesel manages these volunteers from center point energy. >> they don't have any power at this time, but within the next couple hours, they'll be happy people behind us, they'll all have lights. >> reporter: monday night, electricity was restored to many, but across new york and new jersey, more than a million homes and businesses remain without power. mon
are the new minority. cbs 5 political analyst joe tumen says we aren't there yet. >> you'll know this is no longer an issue in this country when we're not doing stories about this anymore. when it's not remarkable. when we don't refer to someone by genderizing them in some way. >> reporter: nancy pelosi is one of the biggest fundraisers for the democratic party. some say her decision to stay on just gives republicans more fuel to their fire. technically she needs to win a leadership vote to stay on. but democrats say she's a lock. >>> after years after telling you all the doom and gloom, i had to do a double-take on this one. california may soon have a budget surplus! legislative budget analysts say the deficit will be about $1.9 billion this fiscal year, and we could see surpluses by 2014! a few months ago, we were talking about a $16 billion deficit. >> we have to pay down our debts. we borrowed from the schools, we borrowed from the redevelopment fund. the economical recovery bond, we borrowed from the people, and we borrowed from local government, and we got to pay that back.
, cbs news. >> mr. president, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the libya attack. >> right. >> do you believe that this was a terrorist attack? >> well, it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously, it was an attack on americans. >> there's obviously a lot of questions about why this wasn't released earlier, even if it happened do you think it makes any difference? because you can look at that just as people looked at the rose garden speech and you can say well, he didn't answer it directly, he didn't say this wasn't a terrorist attack, but he also didn't say it was. >> it's too late. i think that's why it's been released now. what's shocking about this, that interview was september 12th, the same day the president went to the rose garden, as was the big issue in the second debate, did he or did he not say specifically what took place in benghazi was terrorism. why is "60 minutes" only releasing this now? why did they sit on it? why didn't they release it the morning after
delivered the message that she received from our intelligence community. cbs news reports the points were not edited to minimize the role of extremists, diminish terrorist afill yags or play down that this was an yak. the intelligence community opted to leave specific reference to al qaeda and terrorism out of her presentation because they didn't want al qaeda to know that we knew what we knew. this is classic investigative philosophy. don't let the suspects know you suspect them. it's clear to me there was no mendacity by susan rice, no incompetence, there was no cover-up by the white house. to continue to argue there was any of that is now tin foil hat stuff. there is also now no will to filibuster to block rice. this is perhaps why john mccain has softened his tone. >> but you're saying that she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position just as she said, but she's not the problem. the problem is the president of the united states. >> that's an end, i hope, to the vicious and basele
. this was his response monday on cbs news. >> a lot of people got ballots to vote early. if you do not turn those cn and you show up to vote, then you become a provisional ballot operator. it is possible, if it is very, very close, that we will not know the results of this for awhile. i'm just not a fortune teller. i cannot predict that. the provisional ballots could be numerous, but we will see. we still have today and people can drop that absentee ballot into the ballot box on election day. >> over the weekend, democrats called attention to other voting challenges by filing a lawsuit to force florida's republican governor rick scott to extend early voting. last year, scott and republican state legislature reduced early voting times and now voters are seeing waits of more than six hours at the polls. still, the 2012 election is also expected to set a record for early voting. 30 million americans have already cast their ballot through early voting across 34 states. to talk more about what is happening at the polls, what voters can expect, and you can call if they encounter problems, we're j
and romney questioned him and candy crowley jumped in and said you are wrong. cbs news he was wrong. megyn: good job as always, thanks so much. coming up. pot is legal ... we'll tell you where. i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. megyn: an outbreak of voter fraud claims. what were the 11th hour issues that sprang up last night and where? plus what do it all mean for elections going forward. eric? >> reporter: we know what's expected on election day. the broken machines, scanners that don't scan and long line. what is not expected is you show up and the poll work looks aught and says you already voted. voters say when they showed up to vote they were told they had absentee ballots voted in their names. he said the information was all correct including the driver's license number but the signature
